Students Are Not Taught What They Must Know
Education has been defined as “learning what you MUST KNOW in order to FIND OUT what you NEED TO KNOW.” Reading, writing, and arithmetic are called the education BASICS for good reason. You must have these skills to FIND OUT things you NEED TO KNOW.
How could you read a book, shop intelligently, understand road signs when driving, follow directions on household appliances, earn a living, detect lies, follow your many interests and inclinations if you could not read, write, and figure? How could you make your own decisions if you had no way to seek information, and no accumulation of knowledge against which to compare and evaluate new information?
Reading, writing, and arithmetic are the basic essentials of what you must know to FIND OUT what you NEED TO KNOW. Without these basic skills you are at the mercy of the opinions of others and without the ability to gather enough facts to verify or discard what you have been told.
